Hey, my Mom was born in SF Richmond district then lived in Marina. She met an English guy, moved to England where I was born and still remain.

As much as I like England my heart craves for San Francisco, my heart jumps when I hear it mentioned, see it on tv or theres a tv show set there and I lap it up.

I was just wondering/hoping if I could make a few friends who would like to share a few photos with me and just tell me about their everyday lives, just simple things like say an ice cream truck or a shop in Marina, everyday things that will help me touch base with the place I feel is my home but Ive never been to.

It sure would be appreciated if you could help me get aquainted with the places my Mom called home especially Marina where she spent most of her time while there.

Thanks :)

Since you're Mother lived in the Marina, she was close to the Presidio, a military base founded by the Spainish. Its now part of the Golden Gate Recreational Area and parts of it have been restored to nature. You can walk along the Bay all the way from the Marina to the South end of the Golden Gate Bridge. Its great for joggling and walking your dogs, but its also nice just to find a place to lay down on the sand or grass and stare across the Bay to the Bridge or to Alcatraz. Watching the wind surfers on a nice day is exciting as well. Hope you get to visit very soon.

Hey there, thank you so much for your reply and very sorry for my late reply in turn Ive been on holiday (or should I say vacation lol).

Presidio sounds like a really cool place and I enjoyed reading your description, its deffo on my list if I ever do make it 'home.'

Would I be asking too much ifit were possible for you to take a couple of photos for me next time you're enjoying this wonderful place? Plz be assured its no problem at all if its not possible but would be gratefully appreciated if it is thanks you.

You have a fine time now and thanks you very much for your reply :)
